Many congratulations to Dr Lapo Bogani, who has been selected for the Olivier Kahn Laureate Award, having impressed the judges with his multi-doctrinal research. It is a prestigious award which is widely respected in the scientific community. The award will be presented to Lapo during the ECMM2015 meeting in Zaragoza in September.
The University’ Green Impact awards ceremony was held on Wednesday 17 June, and Materials achieved two awards; Silver for the Department and Gold for the Labs! We were one of two Departments within the entire scheme to be presented with two awards, so this is a huge achievement!
The Materials Modelling and Design group has been granted more than 16M CPU-hours direct access to the UK's national supercomputing facility ARCHER to accelerate the development of record-breaking perovskite-based photovoltaic devices.
